Is the legalization of Hemp possible in Virginia?
Republican House of Delegate member Joseph Yost says ‘why not’. Delegate Yost plans to introduce a bill for the 2015 legislative session that would legalize hemp farming. The crop is illegal to produce in Virginia because of its close relationship with marijuana, but the proponents say it’s not dangerous as it does not have as much THC, the ingredient in pot or weed that causes the drug’s effect. Yost, represents the 12th District in the Virginia General Assembly and plans to submit his bill on the first day of pre-filing for the next session.
